Triggers for Hashimoto’s
Getting to know about these triggers helps one in managing depression especially if it originates from thyroid dysfunction. There are people who have experienced a relief in symptoms or a decrease in thyroid antibodies due to modification in diet.
One of the reasons why people should start on gluten-free diet first is because some people could get into remission just by getting rid of certain foods, normalizing thyroid antibodies and thyroid function. Nevertheless, this does not usually happen for all people and this has to be dug deeper. There are other factors that could trigger Hashimoto’s disease such as stress, infections and toxins.
Everyone is encouraged to get their thyroid hormone tested since this helps in identifying many underlying health issues. People should also heal their triggers; normalize their numbers and thyroid function as a way of getting into remission.
An Italian Study was done on people who had Hashimoto’s, Celiac disease and subclinical hypothyroidism. The results showed that those who were gluten-free for a whole year, 71% normalized their condition and 19% normalized thyroid antibodies.
One of the clients shared this information with a specialist who recommended a test for food sensitivities on her. It was found out that she was sensitive to gluten, diary, pineapples and peaches. However, after three days of dairy and gluten-free she was relieved from the stomach pain, bloating, acid reflux and IBS she was experiencing.
Normally, a person may have one or two food sensitivities and if one has more than this there could be another contributing factor such as an infection. The most common sensitivities include grains especially corn, dairy, gluten, seeds, nuts and nightshades like peppers and potatoes.
